and other lodging facilities in a variety of environments.  A food management

franchises have opened opportunities for advancement.  Graduates of this
program are prepared to work in restaurants, clubs, resorts, institutional
food service, and similar establishments.  Not all courses in this program
transfer to all colleges.  Students planning to transfer should see an
academic advisor or counselor before enrolling in any course.

prerequisite information.  See the Assessment and Placement Testing section
for skills assessment and advising information.

General education is an important part of this program and includes a
mathematics competency requirement.  To fulfill the mathematics competency
requirement, students may need to complete specific course work in
mathematics.  See the General Education Core Requirements section for
information on how to fulfill these requirements.
